British philosopher, Antony Flew, was the 20th century’s champion of atheism. When atheists couldn’t answer an argument, or felt they were losing ground, they would call on Flew.
But then Flew, a genuine and honest thinker, made a decision that shocked the atheistic world – he changed his mind. The evidence for the existence of God, Flew discovered, was not only overwhelming, but indefensible.
Flew died in 2010. But, in 2007, he published his story of what made him change his mind. It’s fascinating (and a very hard read – I’ve had to read some pages three times.) The man was absolutely brilliant. His story provides invaluable insight into the mind of a true thinker, and former atheist.
Flew held to the the wise Socratic maxim, “You must go where the argument/evidence leads.” The Bereans, as recorded in Acts 17, held to this maxim as well for Luke recorded that they, “examined the Scriptures daily to see if what Paul was teaching was true.”
